Re: Re: claws

A couple years ago, Sugar took one of the cannas in that shade bed where
she naps on the North side of the house, and pulled it over to make a
canopy over her favorite spot. She didn't break it or hurt it, she just
bent it over (I watched her do this, thought she was after a bug or
something) and then got underneath it, inspected her handiwork, and
promptly conked out for an hour. It stayed that way the rest of the
season (until I cut them down in December). I like to tell that story to
people who think animals are dumb. That's a laugh. Who's home playing
and sleeping and who just drove 25 miles in the rain to come to work??
The DUMB one is at work. I've got a picture of Sugar's "cannapy"

somewhere. If I can find it, I'll send it to Donna to post. She's pretty
good about staying off of the plants, unless they're little seedlings.
Those I have to watch....
